Wasps

I knew that there were wasps in Aoteroa as I have caught glimpses of them over the years, but I have never stopped to really look at them until I joined this site.

Now what made me start to notice wasps was the German wasp, whose photo is below, landed one day on the deck seat. I rushed off to grab my camera and came back and he was still there, so I started taking photos and he slowly turned around. Poser!

A few days later I was photographing the pohutukawa blooms (and practising my photography at the same time). Once I had a lot of photos I loaded them onto my pc and that is when I saw that there was a wasp on one of the flowers.

A few photos later there is another wasp, but it didn't look the same as the first one. Ahhhh did this mean that there was more than one type?

Yep, sure did and they come in different colours which really helps when it comes to identifying them. Far easier than plants!

Here is the collection of wasps on one tree at one time as well as the german wasp.

This insect kindly landed in front of me and slowly turned around so I could get photos from all angles :)

I do not have a clue if this is a wasp or a bee, but I am thinking because of the body shape it is a wasp.

It is visiting a pohutukawa tree.
